Benjamin Moore just announced the October Mist as its Color of the Year for 2022. October Mist is a gorgeous shade of soft, earthy green. This dusty hue evokes restoration, relaxation and peace, and is often linked to growth. It is also found at the center of the color spectrum, symbolizing balance and harmony. Additionally, green represents the heart chakra or energy center, signifying a feeling of love and compassion.

I am a color specialist, designer and creator of tools that work with the magic of color (Prism Oracle and Color, shape and magic), and one of my favorite ways to use individual colors is to apply them with intention and purpose, further enhancing their emotional resonance. Below are some creative tips on how to incorporate October Mist into your home, whether you’re ready to paint an entire room or want to start with something smaller.

Where to use it

When choosing a color for your space, it’s important to consider how the color makes you feel, how you would like someone else to feel about the space, and the purpose of the room you would like to use the space in. color. Since October Mist has such a balanced and restorative vibe, you might want to use it to enhance rooms that already have that feel or in spaces that you would like to bring that feel to, like a bedroom, living room, bedroom, living room, bedroom bathroom or meditation room. You can also use it to make an office more peaceful and help reduce stress. October mist also works well in a kitchen or dining room as it signifies love of self, friends and family. It’s also perfect in any space where you want to bring a stronger sense of nature and growth.

Use it as an accent

Adding a touch of October haze is a great way to incorporate its emotional properties into a space without having to commit to painting an entire room. It is also perfect for those with little free time. One way to do this could be to paint a piece of furniture. A dining table would be a wonderful application when people gather around it, which would tap into the loving and growing connotations of this shade. Painting shelves in an office would be a good way to temper feelings of anxiety or burnout. Another idea is to paint a door to reinforce the feeling that you are entering a space of greater peace and quiet within your home.

Painting the ceiling of a room, in addition to the walls, creates an enveloping feeling and a deeply immersive experience. Paint your bedroom ceiling to transform it into a calming oasis. Or try this technique in your living room, where you want to feel comfortable after a long day.

Explore patterns and shapes

You can also consider using October Mist to create hand painted wallpaper. This can be achieved by creating a pattern using a stencil (either pre-made or you can make your own) in any design you want, or by hand painting a pattern. The type of shapes you choose to use can also improve the psychological properties of that color. Organic shapes can signify a feeling of relaxation, while geometric shapes can evoke a sense of stability. Additionally, using more textured patterns with October Mist can also create a stronger connection between your home and the natural world.
